Amber Rose Says She No Longer Cares if She’s Called “a Slut”

Amber Rose

No matter how far away she gets from him, Amber Rose seems to be always connected to Kanye West... and while it doesn't bother her, being called a slut used to... until now.

In an op-ed for TIME, the former stripper urges ladies to ease up on each other, while explaining that she no longer cares what people call her... especially if it's "a slut".

"Ever since high school, I've been called a slut," Amber writes. "All the boys were attracted to me -- that wasn't my fault! Then, when I started getting famous, the shaming got even worse. All these messed up stories came out about me, and I was like, 'That's not true! I'm not that kind of girl!' But even things I had done -- things a man would never be judged for -- got me lots of hate.

"But in the past year," she continues, "I've just started not caring."

Amber says this happened when she "realized that I can't make everyone believe. And I can't talk to everyone and tell them who I really am. They're still going to have their own opinions."

"If you know me, you love me. If you don't know me, you might love me, but you might not -- and that's cool. And you know what? Now I sleep like a baby at night."

Unfazed by others' opinions, Amber calls it an "amazing feeling" "It's about loving who you are, owning who you are and knowing that it's O.K. to live your life how you want to live it."

While Amber may not pay too much attention to her haters, she did take notice when Kanye dissed her in his recent tirade against Wiz Khalifa. No one's perfect... and that's something she admits in the op-ed.
